Peace a distant prospect in the Middle East

If peace has become an increasingly remote possibility in the Middle East, it's because both the Israelis and the radical Islamic Hamas had longed for war, the conservative daily Magyar Nemzet writes: "As long as children in the Gaza Strip talk of a holy war against Israel, and as long as Israeli schoolchildren paint smiling faces on the missiles that kill Palestinian kids their own age, there can be no talk of a peace process. If the Palestinian president [Abbas] asks the UN to recognise Palestine as a non-member state in two weeks' time, Israel has threatened to put an abrupt end to the peace process. ... But every child knows that no one wants peace. Everyone wants war."
